Orientation

Welcome to Boston College Law School!

We are here to help you get ready for your time at BC Law.

Orientation activities are meant to help you meet your fellow classmates, learn about the resources, programs, and support staff available to you at BC Law, and begin to gain substantive experience about what it means to study and practice law. Our goal is to prepare you for success, both during your first year and throughout your time with us and after you enter the profession.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our First-Year Orientation schedule this year will look quite different. We will be mixing in a number of live and pre-recorded virtual events, online learning modules and "get to know each other" sessions. Our goal is to provide you with everything you need, while ensuring the health and safety of our community and adhering to Massachusetts state guidelines. 

We will be announcing the schedule and resources available to you soon. Please check back frequently and monitor your email for updates.


For any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of Admissions. For general university related questions, such as your student ID, student loans and loan deferments, or parking permits, contact University Student Services:
